I'm by no means a Tiger apologist, but I'm going to sound like one now. For everyone who's mentioned that he was 'cavalier' with the rules, or that he didn't understand them well enough... Tiger probably knows the rules better than the people who wrote them. At Augusta, if his ball had gone across the water, hit the bank, and rolled back into the water, I'm sure he would have played from the correct spot. But hitting the flag stick and ricocheting back? Obviously his mind...
I agree with Callaway, the gap in yardage between your 6 and 9 irons doesn't leave much room to use your 7 or 8 iron. Hopefully that will improve as you play more. By "decent", if you mean "I won't be embarrassed by how short I hit it", don't worry, your 9 iron distance is pretty good for a beginner, and most golfers aren't worried about how far you hit a certain club, anyway.

This will get your club on more of an upswing as it makes contact with the ball. If this doesn't work, you might want to try teeing it a bit higher. If you tee the ball sort of low now, you might want to try teeing it higher first, and see if that makes a difference.
